Things to see and do in Rivera Maya

Hi,

we are traveling to Mexico for the first time. We will be traveling with a 7 years old daughter. We will be staying at Grand Palladium Colonial Resort & Spa. We also plan to rent a car for the week. What are the local attractions worth seeing? Also, how safe is it to do it on your own vs. trips you can buy at the hotel? Any suggestions including the approximate cost are really appreciated. Is it better to pay in US $ or exchange money there and pay in pessos?

Hi again: I just googled the Palladium Colonia Resort & Spa and it seems to be near Cancun in Puerto Aventuras. We have a Palladium near Punta Mita, but we're on the Pacific Coast and our Riviera is called Riviera Nayarit. If you're looking for that hotel in the Riviera Maya, try this Forum, or even the much busier Cancun Forum. If not, and you're looking for the Pacific Coast Palladium, please post back. Good luck.

the forum you want is the "riviera maya" forum. the puerto adventuras forum is very slow and most use the riviera maya forum because it covers most of the towns south of cancun. besides the ruins and beach at tulum there's the mayan village and ruins of coba. there are a couple of very nice eco-water parks (xel-ha and xcaret). of course a few hours away are the major ruins of chitzenitsa (totally incorrect spelling but phoenically ok LOL) have a great time and don't forget to visit the small marina in puerto adventuras. your daughter will like it!

Hi,

thanks for your post. So here is the address of our hotel:

Carretera Chetumal-Cancun Km. 256-1

Kantenah, Quintana Roo 77710

Mexico

Is that in the Rivera Maya area?

Yes, you wil be on the east side of the country rather than on the west coast.

Have a great time!

yes....quintana roo is the state where cancun and puerto adverturas and other riviera maya villages are located on the yucatan peninsula. you will fly into cancun airport and shuttle about 45 minutes south. don't forget to visit playa del carmen while your there. it's a great town! you can even ferry over to cozumel for the day from playa. your questions at this point should really be on the riviera maya forum as a few thousand miles separate punta de mita and the riviera maya. have a great trip!
